Last month, Waymo announced that starting July 7, Waymo One riders can now access an additional 45 square miles of Metro Phoenix, which now covers 225 square miles of the Valley. The expanded service area stretches further north to Uptown Phoenix and as far as Gainey Ranch. The service also grows south of the city to South Mountain Village and east to more of downtown Mesa.

Newly added destinations include Camelback Mountain, McCormick Ranch, The Farm at South Mountain and many award-winning resorts across the Valley.

The company says that to service such a large area and better accommodate longer trips, Waymo One tests its vehicles on the freeway with employees and an autonomous specialist behind the wheel. Waymo One serves well over 10,000 trips per week to public riders, not including employees. This latest expansion and strong ridership in Metro Phoenix will play a large role as the company continues to scale over time.
